    Dont be stupid.Then why did the Navy catch them?

    So the Chinese are coming all the from China to fish in our waters and sell the same fish to SL fisheries corporation canned fish factory in Galle. Why we allow another country to fish in our waters when we import fish from them. Is selling all our natural resources free of charge to other countries is the GOSL's latest game plan...to stay in power. Ashchrirya...or Baluchariya. This is the worst crime in our history.

    stop being a pussi !

    Don't go against big guns. They should be released ASAP after the police interrogation. Think of our infrastructure development and they bring a new phase to Srilanka. Nobody will assist SL like this in near 15 years to come because all the other countries are on recession.

    This is a news to India

    Takiya Monday, 06 August 2012 07:15 AM

    Release them immediately! They are friends to Sri Lanka not like India which is PERSECUTING "Poor Suffering muslims" (TM) around the world!

    Gregory Monday, 06 August 2012 07:36 AM

    Plundering of our natural resources in the name of fishing so that Shark's Fin Soup could be enjoyed on the mainland

    lkboy Monday, 06 August 2012 07:54 AM

    jayasiri Monday, 06 August 2012 08:21 AM

    It could that two sri lankans cheating the chinese to fish in SL waters.

    Mario Monday, 06 August 2012 08:54 AM

    This is just a trap to show India, "hey look, we arrest chinese too", India is to vote again in Human Rights Periodic Session in UN, so expect more gimmicks like these.

    sampath Monday, 06 August 2012 08:55 AM

    POOR ??? Suffering??? muslims around the world, that's US mate not India, what about the POOR Suffering peaceful loving people of the world suffering from international Muslim terrorism for no valid cause other fundamentalism

    sampath Monday, 06 August 2012 08:56 AM

    So poaching in our waters has been legalized by this Govt. only for China

    mail_guy Tuesday, 07 August 2012 03:13 AM

    china doesn't care about sri lanka and lankans think that chinese are friends. china is a friend with benefits. whatever happens to lanka india is the only hope. lanka knows that but can't tell the truth out-side. poor sri lanka

    LongLeg Monday, 06 August 2012 10:48 AM

    that is US, but maybe Takiya is refering to the fact that India are now siding up with USA.

    bandara Monday, 06 August 2012 10:34 AM

    Just release them. Poor fishermen. Let them go home and be with their families.

    Nodrog Monday, 06 August 2012 11:10 AM

    Fine them Rs. 10 and release them.

    Takiya Monday, 06 August 2012 12:12 PM

    I was being sarcastic.....hence the bracketed TradeMark.

    Sammy Tuesday, 07 August 2012 04:44 AM
